Attacking Ward Churchill, in 1993?
—————Attacking Ward Churchill, in 1993?—————-
——-Is This Bob Black another “Breitbart” conservative American Anarchist?
My God, I am 1/2 Real Amerindian 66 Years old, and Everything Ward Churchill speaks about Genocide is Truth!
Yet here attacked by a Friend of John Zerzan?
I would like to Phone In to ask about this….but I am a AWFUL CALLER!
I forget what I am saying, then go off on Tangents…short: I am Crazy. I am Anarchist. The Family committed me to State Hospital 1968- LSD, Mushrooms, Hippie, Schizoid- Diagnosis? “Crazy” but Now my Still Magical Nativist Anarchist thinking is “CRAZY” or “ANARCHIST” = “PSYCHOSIS”???
What else? Why is everybody freaking out over Molly Gill’s white nationalist infiltration of anarchdom, although she has never concealed her opinions or claimed to be an anarchist, whereas nobody but Lawrence and I have noticed the red nationalist infiltration of anarchdom by Professor Ward Churchill and his partner Dr. M. Annette Jaimes? This pair is to indigenism what Dworkin and MacKinnon are to feminism. Churchill, formerly of Weatherman SDS, is that only too ubiquitous figure, the Marxist-turned-nationalist. He and his girl friend play good cop/bad cop, Churchill serving his racism straight up, Jaimes watering her drinks.
Jaimes’ article was, in Anarchy, a waste of space, although it might have been enlightening for its original leftist readership. It said nothing that has not been as well or better said in publications like Anarchy and the Fifth Estate for ten to twenty years now. Even some of her phraseology sounded like it was taken from people like John Zerzan and myself, both conspicuous by our absence from her footnotes. I’m not affronted by these omissions — the more this information gets around, the better I like it — but I wonder what they mean.
Zerzan was too gentle with Dr. Jaimes, intimidated, perhaps, by her privileged position as a woman and a Native American. She openly celebrates Amerindian civilizations like the Aztecs and Incas for their independent invention of the state, imperialism, slavery, priestly religion, human sacrifice and other Old World accomplishments. Euro- and Afro-Americans need no lessons from Indians in these activities, we need lessons in living in entirely different ways. What matters is not, as for Jaimes and Churchill, who, what matters is how. The thousands of Europeans who went native (“gone to Croatan”) in colonial America learned such lessons from their Indian hosts. So should Churchill and Jaimes. What they’re teaching we already know only too well.
